Herding Cats

Everything was in place, and still the camera was lowered from the photographer’s eye.

Zoe: Stephanie. Ella. What are you two doing?

Me (calling down from the top of the steps): Just kinda, ya know, making shapes together…?

Zoe: No.

Stephanie and I: No?

Zoe: Uh-uh. (Shakes head.)

Stephanie and I: Oh. OK then. Normal posing (less symmetrical; less comical/excitable) is resumed. Results below. (….I loooove these pictures. How cool to get all of us models in the same place at the same time in front of a lens, to commemorate what a fun and productive week we had. Zoe Wiseman, woman extraordinaire, rolling around all over the floor, legs improbably askew as she took these, did such a fantastic job of organising things and I’m so happy to have worked with her. All the ladies in the images below are wonderful people and talented models I was excited to meet, and come from all over the world (I’m the only one from England, representin’!). You might want to click the images to enlarge them!)

Later on, I worked twice with Zoe one-to-one, wandering around the grounds of our accommodation. The heat was intense, so the photography was punctuated by dips in the pool. Each set was very quick, with a lot of moving around and finding new places as we went along. You can read what Zoe said about things here, over on her internationally-growing website, www.figuremodels.org.

In other news, I have fiiiiiinally got my brand new 2012 diary. This yearly ritual now requires the search for the perfect postcard to cellophane (yes, a verb now) onto the front, in light of the apparent lack of beautiful page-per-day diaries on the market. I found a good ‘un, you’ll be relieved to know, and will be scheduling in the many national/international trips I’ve been mulling over and scribbling down so far on loose bits of paper.

  1. Very nice work from both Zoe and you… wish I could have been there as I was at the Mission Beach one and it was a fantasic time. Will definitely be at the next one.

  2. Strength (and beauty) in numbers. 🙂 I love the ensemble photographs, and the one-on-one images as well…very striking and captivating, especially the underwater shot. Also your mischievous grin I see in one of the colour photos. What were we plotting? 😉
